It's hard not to pan the stunning averageness of Switzerland's Krokus, one of the more insignificant - yet visually amusing - European contributions to the mid-'80s hard rock landscape. Yeesh! Talk about aging badly. At their best ("Long Stick Goes Boom" and "Eat the Rich"), the group sound like a very poor man's AC/DC; at their worst, their cock-rock posturing simply defies description. OK, so the near-thrash intent of "Headhunter" does manage to evoke the infinitely superior Accept, but there's little else here to even justify the group's existence. In all fairness, there definitely were worse bands than Krokus, but you'd be hard-pressed to find them, and the material here hardly deserves a "best of" tag.

A typical mid-'80s Euro-metal band from Switzerland, Krokus formed back in the '70s as a symphonic rock outfit modeled on the likes of Yes and ELP, switching to metal when the band's former direction proved unprofitable. The hard rock lineup included Maltese-born vocalist Marc Storace, guitarists Fernando Von Arb and Tommy Kiefer, bassist Chris Von Rohr (originally the lead vocalist), and drummer Freddy Steady. Kiefer was replaced by roadie Mark Kohler in 1982. Their brand of metal relies heavily on AC/DC and the Scorpions, with simple, radio-friendly riffs and repeatedly chanted choruses.

Stylistically, The Blitz pretty much picked up where Krokus' breakthrough, Headhunter, left off. But ultimately, it failed to equal its predecessor's platinum sales, grinding to a halt just past gold status. A shambolic cover of the Sweet's "Ballroom Blitz" (which didn't sound all that great in its original version) is especially painful, and tepid rockers like "Out to Lunch" and "Hot Stuff" simply fail to excite…

Reissue label drops ball. Thanks to some significant differences in track selection, Castle's Long Stick Goes Boom: The Anthology isn't quite the equal of Arista's Definitive Collection, released three years prior. During the first half of the '80s, Krokus were semiregular occupants of the lower reaches of the U.S. mainstream rock chart. Since this compilation was released in the U.K., it doesn't emphasize the group's stateside successes, since roughly half of the group's chart entries – including the early singles "Burning Bones" and "Winning Man" – are not included. Another unfortunate thing is that three of the songs – "Long Stick Goes Boom," "Lay Me Down," and "Eat the Rich" – are live performances, which defeats the purpose of having the best representation/introduction possible.
